Asian Demand High for Bitcoin Futures 1432

Don Wilson, founder of high-speed trading firm DRW, said bitcoin derivatives trading in Asia hours is almost equal to the volume he’s seen in the U.S., something he says is an anomaly when compared to other financial instruments. Wilson discussed his observations on cryptocurrency trading trends and his view on the future for the technology. Referencing bitcoin futures trading data on U.S. exchanges provided by CME and CBOE, Wilson went so far as to suggest there may be demand for similar trading tools in Asia. He told attendees:

“If you look at the bitcoin futures data from CME and CBOE, volume in Asia hours are almost the same wth the U.S. … Whereas in like foreign exchange, even for the Japanese yen-dollar trading, volume in Asia is significantly lower.”

DRW, one of the earliest institutions that moved into cryptocurrency trading, launched Cumberland, a crypto over-the-counter trading desk in 2014, at a time when others such as Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan have yet to officially roll out similar services. Explaining the initial idea of DRW to start a crypto trading desk, Wilson said it is rooted in his belief that crypto’s decentralization feature.

“There’s the argument about bitcoin as a store of value. But, more interesting to me, is the usefulness of bitcoin. The ability of transfer values without a trust in the system is hugely disruptive,” he said.

How ViaBTC, a Pool Founded 6 Years ago, Continues to Rank Top Globally by Hashrates 5483

Recently, the BTC hashrate has reached a new high. The previous record was 248.11EH/s, which was exceeded when the hashrate figure peaked at 254.77EH/s this month. Despite sluggish market conditions in 2022, the interest in mining remains unabated. In addition, as more people joined the mining community, the BTC hashrate kept going up, and the difficulty also soared. Running low hashrates, individual miners are becoming less competitive, yet the advent of mining pools brought them a ray of hope and also revolutionized conventional mining models.

Of the many pools that have popped up, ViaBTC Pool has left miners with a deep impression. In 2021, some countries cracked down on BTC mining, and many pools went out of business as a result. However, the strict policies didn’t hurt ViaBTC’s BTC hashrate. Instead, it has ranked 1st for a while thanks to the pool’s globally distributed business model and the recognition from global miners.

As a pool founded in 2016, ViaBTC managed to survive and record world-leading hashrates all thanks to the following factors.

A strong team

To create a stable mining environment, the ViaBTC team has deployed nodes all over the world to match miners with the nearest node, which minimizes delays and makes the mining network stabler. So far, ViaBTC remains the pool with the lowest orphan rate in the entire industry, which shows the strength of its team.

At ViaBTC, over 60% of the staff are members of the product and R&D teams, the primary members of which are all seasoned developers from world-renowned Internet-based companies. Led by ViaBTC’s founder Haipo Yang, the team has continued to upgrade and improve the pool. As it keeps the pool secure and stable, the R&D team has introduced more versatile products and features and built a full set of matching tools.

Innovation

To address existing flaws of the mining industry, ViaBTC Pool has rolled out many innovative products. For instance, the pool invented PPS+, which was the first payment method of its kind in the industry, and created Transaction Accelerator, also a unique product. Plus, it is also the first pool to support “Convert Now”. These products have not only improved the mining revenue but also solved the problem of congested transactions under extreme market conditions. Meanwhile, the hourly pay of mining revenue effectively avoids risks arising from price fluctuations.

A well-established blockchain ecosystem

ViaBTC has been trying to build an all-encompassing blockchain ecosystem that integrates products, tools, and investment. In addition to ViaBTC Pool, the group now also boasts other four key business segments, including CoinEx Exchange, ViaWallet, CoinEx Smart Chain (CSC), and ViaBTC Capital, which makes it one of the best-established blockchain firms out there.

Relying on its strong ecosystem, ViaBTC has simplified the tedious process that goes from crypto mining to transaction and circulation. When withdrawing cryptos from ViaBTC Pool to CoinEx Exchange, miners do not have to pay any fees, and withdrawals arrive in real time. Moreover, Staking, a built-in service of ViaWallet, provides miners with all kinds of different ways to preserve the value of their assets in an extended bear market.

How to mine TRON to make money? 4965

Defitrx

As we can see, the TRON network uses a Delegated Participation Proof-of-Participation consensus mechanism and its TRX tokens are fully mined, i.e. they already exist. So I have to tell you that TRON token (TRX) cannot be mined in the traditional sense of the term.

Instead, new coins are generated and verified through a staking process that does not require the use of high-performance equipment such as ASICs as in Bitcoin mining.

This means that while POW (Proof of Work) based consensus requires miners to invest in powerful hardware, DPoS (Delegated Proof of Stake) requires investment in the cryptocurrency itself.

Under this consensus mechanism, the more digital currency users bet, the greater the chance of being selected as a super representative, thereby obtaining more TRX.

TRON token or coin is a cryptocurrency based on the TRON protocol. Just like how ETH was built on the Ethereum blockchain. The TRON cryptocurrency was created as a means of credit sharing, payment and storage. Those who own TRON will have full ownership of every data they create and how that data will be distributed to their audience. 

The new type of TRON mining only needs a mobile phone or a computer, and you can make money without leaving home.

TRON is the three major blockchain ecosystems jointly developed by global blockchain developers and developers, following the concept of «centralized network and decentralized network».
